Detroit -- The local office of a national Muslim civil rights organization said it plans to launch an independent forensic investigation into the shooting death of a Detroit Muslim cleric in October during an FBI raid.I only hope CAIR’s plan doesn’t backfire on them. They’ve somehow managed to get Eric Holder to direct his Justice Department civil rights division to investigate Abdullah’s death.
Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah, head of Masjid Al-Haqq mosque, was shot to death Oct. 28 during a raid on a Dearborn warehouse by FBI agents. They say they shot the imam because he fired first at an FBI dog. Agents said they were investigating Abdullah and several other men in connection with a stolen goods operation.
An autopsy report released Feb. 2 found Abdullah died from 21 bullet wounds.
Lena Masri, a staff attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations Michigan chapter, said Tuesday she has seen more than 75 autopsy photos and other photos of the dead imam. She said in the photos he is lying face down and is handcuffed. (“Muslim group plans probe of imam's death”)
But in view of Attorney General Holder’s very public endorsement of killing terrorists prior to Mirandizing them, as he told a Congressional committee yesterday he intends to do with bin Laden, it may be tough to get a case against the feds for handcuffing a corpse.
